we really have a lot of power, if you think about it. if we were to organize a campaigna and go on a march, nobody would dare get in our way or try and upset one of us. May be it is just me, but i also feel that i am being handled with velvet gloves, very carefully. people are afraid that i will have a nervous breakdoen on the spot or something. a week ago i went to the financial aid office b/c my school funding and living expense loan stuff is a month late, they keep messing it all up. sitting in a lady's office, all it took was a comment by me that i am out of meds and have no money and that it was very bad for me to be out of meds and i feared for my safety as a result. they fast-tracked my money through that day. I feel like going "booo!" and making them jump back a few feet.
